After applying the various scripts and Adblock page elements blocking, the new forums look very, very good: <br /> <br />c <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1kh7PYdJTceOSrCTQRbaifku3nd7ke1" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1kh7PYdJTceOSrCTQRbaifku3nd7ke1_thumb.jpg" border="0" /> <br />c Forum Index Page <br /> <br />c <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1415Q4LZA1vpwD2HcpwBMdXhf5WjU" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1415Q4LZA1vpwD2HcpwBMdXhf5WjU_thumb.jpg" border="0" /> <br />c Forum Thread page <br /> <br /> No more avatars, no more "More Stuff Like This" cr@p, no more Community Experts labels, no more Popular Discussions, no more Top Participants, no more points ratings, no more total numbers of posts for each user, no more nonsense. <br /> <br /> My warmest thanks to Eric, Mark and Zenor, who provided the scripts and blockfilters for this excellent workaround.

Here, page loading time is a matter for concern, and the additional processing required to strip out stuff from every page slowed things up further. Kind of like reconstructing the deck chairs on the Titanic using material from the hull below the waterline. Maybe your experience is different but you might think of using the Firefox "Hammerhead" extension before and after to check the page load times on your particular system.

still a lot of wasted space on the index page. do we need the "last post" column? that forces 2 lines. i say lose that and beef up the font on the index list.

The only advantage of that is, it takes you to the end rather than the beginning of a thread.

and I don't have much of a problem with the topic discussion itself, per se. i think - as others have mentioned, perhaps more than anything else, if not as loudly as some 😉 - that missing the ability to jump directly to "last read for me" in a topic is going to be a real headache.

has anyone contacted jive to see if there's the possibility of a workaround for that one?

Why can't they use a similar system to now. Where after the thread get unwieldy, it collapses to just showing the original thread plus the last 3 to 4 threads. With a button to show entire thread if needed.

Page loading time over there is not an issue here anymore. It's slightly faster than over here. The script hacks do not add any appreciable time to the displaying of a page on screen. They don't take any longer than the plonking script here, a tiny fraction of a second, and well worth it.

What is glacially slow is the posting and replying process, and the scripts are not involved in that in the least.

That column can also be blocked instantaneously with Adblock, but I don't know whether the space can be reclaimed or not. In any event, I do find that column useful for the reason Kath mentions.

I hope afplonk can be tailored to the new forums.

No, he just posted that he had submitted it to them as a feature request and it's "presumably in the que"or words to that effect.

[Another hint: I hope afplonk can be tailored to the new forums. ;)]

Reading Jive's own forums and others in Jive format, providing a proper "read tracking" system seems to be a common request - unsurprisingly.
